family time

The Weekend Recap

Well it was a busy one. I am so glad I have Monday off. We started the weekend off with a sleepover. Two nephews, a niece, and my three boys. Six kids. That means not a moments peace…at all. But I love doing it. We do it every once in a while and the kids just love it. It’s just always the aftermath that gets to me. LOTS of dishes. Toys everywhere. Blankets and sleeping bags to clean up. And of course my children take turns having meltdowns all day because they didn’t get enough sleep. But all in all it’s worth it.

Saturday night we had a little family movie night. We all piled into my bed and watched Hook. Yeah, I got all teary-eyed half a dozen times. Either PMS or the sadness over Robin Williams. I just can’t believe he’s gone! It breaks my heart.


Sunday, I was up before the sun for my race. And it was flippin’ cold!!! Now having Raynauds and having to stand out in the cold waiting for a race to start, and then having to run with no feeling in my toes or the balls of my feet…it was tough. However, by mile two I was all warmed up and it ended up being one of the most enjoyable runs I have ever had. The course was absolutely gorgeous! 6.2 miles of Ocean Road. The beaches, the gorgeous homes/estates. The sun was shining and there was a small breeze coming off the ocean. My running buddy and I kept perfect pace. Our splits were on target for each mile…something that rarely happens with us. We met our goal and that’s what was important to us.

Sunday didn’t end there. Onto a birthday party. My children got a horse for the first time and absolutely LOVED it.  Now I have FOUR kids asking for a pony…yes, a pony is still on my husband’s bucket list. Oye.


How was your weekend?
